Again I not saying DG is a bad gm. I am just saying let's give him more than a year before we bow down to him. Most in the NFL will tell you one year may not necessarily carry over to the next. So what worked magically for him last year may not work as well this year.
Nobody's bowing down to him.
What we are saying is essentially four things...
- Late March / early April is way too soon for panic, doom and gloom, regardless of who the GM is.
- Gettleman did a good job last year, so he's earned the benefit of a doubt going into this season.
- There are limitations and constraints placed on him because of Hurney's mismanagement that he'll have to fight through
- Until the bad contracts written by Hurney are off the books, you can't put all the blame for anything on Gettleman
Bottom Line: Free agency will be continuing for a few months yet and we haven't even gotten close to the draft. There's still plenty of offseason left. For that reason alone, the people screaming and throwing tantrums about the state of the roster right now are being utterly ridiculous.
No 'bowing down to Gettleman'. it's just a matter of being at least a halfway rational adult.
